Over the past years we have written, co-written, and commissioned a number of short publications. We have also assisted and advised others in the writing of books on Rowntree subjects. Our own publications are available to download, and to order in hard copy. We also have stocks of small selection of related publications that we can supply on request.
Joseph Rowntree: A Brief Biography
We highly recommend Chris Titley’s illustrated biography that we commissioned and researched (published in October 2013 by ourselves at The Rowntree Society, jointly with Shire Publications). Contact us if you’d like a copy.
The Rowntree Legacy: Capitalism, Compassion, Change
We co-wrote The Rowntree Legacy, together with a Poster Exhibition as part of our Seebohm Rowntree HLF project.
See also the downloadable Factsheet (right) that gives a quick overview to Seebohm’s remarkable achievement as a whole.
Five Rowntree Walks in York
In 2017 we produced a 48-page book of Five Rowntree Walks that give an introduction to the built environment in five areas of York with a strong Rowntree connection. They show the extent to which the family had a hand in shaping the modern city.
